Storyline

Before CNN, cam-corders, and communications satellites, the only way to view exotic locales was on real film that might take weeks or months to arrive from the far corners of the world. The raison d'etre for this program was to bring that film to the television viewer. Each week some adventurer would be asked to narrate his 16 mm home movies for the viewing audience. The film might be from the Amazon jungle or the arctic regions of northern Alaska. Teenage boys were drawn to the show not only by the adventure but also by the occasional fleeting glimpse of some native woman's bare breast. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

excellent documentary series
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of a number of similar series of true adventure stories popular in the 1950's.It was hosted by Jack Douglas,who had previously hosted the similar "I Search For Adventure" series,even better, a few years earlier.This was also produced by Julian & Sol Lessser.Each week a different person or persons who had gone on some type of adventure,usually into a remote part of the earth would show the movies they had made of their trip,narrating while the host asked questions and made comments.The programs varied in interest,of course, depending on the type of adventure.Mountain climbing,skindiving to lost wrecks,raft trips,archeology,were some of the types of things that you saw. The variety, and the fact that these were REAL adventures,unlike the so-called "reality" programs of today, is what gave them lasting value.Let us hope that these series still exist and that some day we may be able to view them again.
